In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Chandler Vannoy are joined by Levi Lusko, lead pastor of Fresh Life Church. They discuss how being knowledgeable in areas outside your specialty can benefit your leadership and the unique challenges facing the church during this time.
“We are only going to be effective in ministry long-term if we can manage ourselves, manage our emotions, and productively minister to people in a way that is life giving.”
“People that have a wider range than just one discipline will be more likely to explore more options than jump to what they specialize in.”
“The murky water is how to we execute a clear vision in a dark world?”
“We have Zoom, we have our Bibles, we have our phones. Let’s go.”
“I have tried to build our home to be a place of Selah for our family.”
“We are trying to make sure our kids know that their problems and flaws are not ever a problem to me because i am a pastor.”
“I think the brokenness in the church and so many families and pastors burning out is because of the perceived need to present some sort of lacquered version of what life looks like.”
“I was so busy wanting to drive the devil out of Montana that I took for granted the call on my life to be intentional about helping other people succeed.”
